Today, we're after an Aha! Moment to fire up our lives. It turns out the phrase Aha! Moment is actually in the dictionary...So how do we have an Aha! Moment about our lives? How good would it be to find that thing, that really excites you? That motivates you to get out of bed with extreme energy every morning. In short, how can we all have an Aha! Moment. (Preferably this week, not that we're impatient...)
Today's Zestology guest is the host of a podcast that has taken the iTunes Podcast chart by storm. John Lee Dumas is the host of Entrepreneur On Fire, with over 1000 episodes in the bag and a huge amount of listeners.
